Light, Color, & Shadows

Activities for Light, Color, & Shadows in Preschool

Light, color, and shadows have become popular subjects to study in the early grades. We offer a variety of light tables and translucent manipulatives to support light-related science activities. One of the Creative Curriculum Study Starter topics is Shadows. It builds on children's fascination with this natural phenomenon. Do shadows move when I move? Are shadows only outside? Should I be scared of a shadow when it gets so big? Children will make lots of exciting discoveries as they explore with light, color, and the world of shadows!
